Happy 4th Birthday Isaac!

Isaac Preston,
Around this time 4 years ago, Daddy and I swaddled you up and kissed your sweet cheeks for the last time.  We were saying goodbye to your body knowing that your soul had already been in heaven for several hours.  I feel like with each year that passes heaven seems a little closer and even sweeter than before.  Just in the last few months several amazing people that I love very much have joined you.  Somehow it has brought me comfort to know that you were there to greet them.  I continue to tell your story and you continue to find your way into people's hearts.  I am so thankful God chose me to be your mommy.  I often wonder what you would be like if you were still here.  What sport would be your favorite?  Would you like to build with Legos like your Daddy did when he was a little boy?  You would be going into PreK next month.  Goodness I can't believe how quickly time has passed.  Happy 4th Birthday my precious blessing.  We had a wonderful day celebrating your life with your sisters by going to the movies, taking a new baby a gift at the hospital, then eating Chuys.  This evening we ate hotdogs with Nana, Tata, and Aunt Susan.  We sent your balloons to you and ate a cookie cake.  Kadynce and Lydia played on the slip and slide and with water balloons.  You would have had a blast!  I love you and miss you more than words can say!

Kelly's Korner: Meet Susan

Thanks to my amazing sis-in-law for inviting me to post on her blog! I guess this could be considered shameless self -promotion…that, or just putting myself out there.  I’d like to claim the latter but either way, I feel like the last year or so of my life, I’ve been learning how to take more risks, so I’ll just chalk this up to one of them :)

So… basic stats & interests: I’m 33 and I sometimes reach things in tall places for others with my 5’8” stature.  I am… an enjoyer of exploring the outdoors, hiking, and running…. and a lover of all kinds of food, music, movies (who isn’t??)…  and photography.  I rarely turn down a strong cup of coffee, a good convo, or an opportunity to find humor in everyday life (…because we all do some random, funny, quirky stuff…you know it’s true).

 Things I value…  Family… (sidenote here-- I recently moved to the Austin, Texas area last Spring and have loved being close to my bro, sis-in-law & her family and two amazing, silly, crazy, lovable little nieces!)… Friendships/investing time in others…. and most importantly…my relationship with Christ.  I have been given much grace, apart from the Lord I am nothing, and the essence of who I seek to be is a woman who loves & follows Christ with everything.

 Simply put…I am looking for a man who shares the same values… who I can ‘do life’ with—the joys & good, the ugliness & bad, the humor, and the everyday mundane.  A few similar interests are great but totally not a requirement.  The most important thing is that he loves the Lord first and is genuinely pursuing a relationship with Christ.   Oh …and being in/around/near the ATX area is ideal! J 
So… there you have it….  IF I sound like someone you may potentially want to get to know more... feel free to post and/or get more info to contact me!
